We had a very good stay - from hello to goodbye. The staff is professional and eager to help. The rooms are clean and efficient. The management went above and beyond to accommodate a family member with mobility issues. The local food that was prepared was freshly made, affordable, and delicious. The weather was slightly chilly at night; but the...

Spacious good-value room with hot-water shower was a great base before and after the climb of Adam's Peak. Manager was willing to give a discount. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I liked the food--rice & curry dinners and Western breakfasts. This is the second hotel on the left when you reach the town. Wi-fi was hit and miss.

This place is a dive and the manager is a dishonest scammer. Where to begin? For starters we got a ok price, 2500 rups. Not bad for the area. But we were told that normally the room goes for 5000-7000 rups. And as we are getting a lower price we should give them a five star review. If the bed...

The best thing about staying at the White Elephant hotel is the people. They are really helpful and friendly, and they have a yummy breakfast - perfect for hungry people who have just climbed Adam's Peak. The rooms are clean and large, with wonderful views. The hotel is located in an ideal place, 5-10 mins from the beginning of the...

We spent the night here due to its convenient location to start the 2AM hike up to Adam’s Peak. The hotel we had initially envisioned was fully booked so this was our second choice hotel. I had a look at all the other “hotels” on this road and honestly there are not that many options in this area in terms...
